Being a little more specific on said "farting noises" would help. It sounds like you mean an exhaust gurgle when you roll out of the throttle approaching a turn or stop. Doesn't hurt the bike but you're prolly running a little rich and getting the bike tuned would help some.

Don't really know without more info then "my bike farts" :rotfl:

You need to be a lot more specific than this.
By coasting you mean in neutral?
Where does the noise come from?
How long does it last?
What causes it to stop?

sorry chaps ,right the bike is still in gear but coasting when the noise happens, yes most definatley from the exhaust almost phut phut type (hard to write noises) the running rich reply could be right as i thought that but like an experienced opinion , started about two weeks ago ride every day very slowly getting more pronounced wrong word more frequent in it happening oh and for madmatt01 yes smells like roses, i like it humour from a web footed sister loving red neck, just kidding matt spent 15 years in florida great state.

you running a race can, if so could be just a bit rich, but check there is not a small (and i mean small leak ) in exhaust system. Put rag and hand over end and listen for leak. If there is a small leak it could make a fart sound......

I'd agree. Check the exhaust system for air leaks.

My 954 started to "fart" during gear down after I peformed the "flapper mod"... I don't even pay attention to it as it doesn't cause any problems and it doesn't cause any loss of performance.

Wow, web-footed? Sister loving? I'll have you know that I don't even have a sister you wine swilling, bread crunching, cheese farting frog! (LOL):patriot:

You must have put some of that cheese in your bike, now its paying you back.

Seriously though, sounds like everybody else said. What exhaust are you running?

Before you do anything, make sure the farting sound is from the bike. I was riding my bike the other day, and I heard a farting sound. I then realized that the sound was emanating from the rider.
